The Blue Canarias helicopter excursion will take you over the south of the island where you get a bird's eye view of some fascinating geological features.

So, is it a bird or a plane? could it be a tour, or an excursion? From all the information we have gathered, the answer seems to be it could be either. What we have done with the Excursion section of the website, is viewed an excursion as an organised trip to one place of interest or activity. we have treated tours as organised trips taking you through various places of interest and with more than one stop on the tour.

You will find listed, different tours that are on offer and a company name and contact telephone number for you to be able to book your tour or excursion.
